The magic has finally run out. Much like its other acclaimed, but low-rated two-season drama 'Boss,' premium cable network Starz has officially opted not to renew its 1960s Jeffrey Dean Morgan crime drama 'Magic City.' The second season, and ultimately series finale will air this coming Friday night.
Among some of the more direct news to come out of Starz' TCA press tour panel, including an exceptionally early renewal for Michael Bay pirate drama 'Black Sails,' the premium cable network offered up a few updates on some of its more skeptical properties. 'Spartacus' creator Steven S. DeKnight's 'Halo' meets 'Band of Brothers' project 'Incursion' remains very much in play, though 'Boss' and 'Magic City' fans have a bitter pill to swallow.
Seeing as pirates tend to take what they want without fear of reproach, it should come as little surprise that Starz's forthcoming 'Treasure Island' prequel 'Black Sails' has already pilfered itself a second season, a full five months before the pilot premiere even airs to the general public. Still, will the Michael Bay-produced series live up to its promise?
If you're not a fan of 'Magic City,' you probably should be as the Jeffrey Morgan- and Steven Strait-starring Starz series was renewed for a second season even before season 1 aired. The period Miami mobster drama takes place in Havana around the time Castro's rebels are attempting to seize power, all while Ike Evans (Morgan) is trying to run his hotel.
Sounds like a nice ride, huh? Well, if you have some catching up to do, we're offering up this chance by giving three of you copies of 'Magic City' season 1 on Blu-ray!
Well, if you're looking to update the mafia presence in the second season of Starz mob drama 'Magic City,' why not go straight to the source, right? 'The Godfather's' own James Caan has been tapped to star in the second season of Starz' Jefferey Dean Morgan period drama, alongside a few new notable actors for the 2013 premiere. But will Caan return to his mobster ways or be a force for good this time around?
It's nearly impossible to define the cultural standard of beauty anymore, with your typical buxom bleached blonde look giving way to modern beauty icons like Adele, Lady GaGa or Tan Lady (yeah, I said it.) Even more difficult can be making period-accurate TV, particularly as the creative minds of Starz's 'Magic City' found out when casting women...
